There has been a sad lack of Koira pictures on the blog as of late, which has also been the case in the Daily Dog Challenge photos as well. Pallo has been my prime poser for pictures, the one who gets to run around and do stuff, and the one who has run around enough that he can sit still and pose instead of bouncing off the walls completely.
Koira likes to sleep on her back. She often starts out curled up, or on her side, and then somehow morphs into this. We call this the "dying cockroach" position.
I found this big open field on the way to flyball practice and just had to stop for a few pictures. I took some with Pallo as well, but Koira's striking coloring just really made the photo pop.
Koira, of course, needed her close up in the snow today as well. We had about 6 inches of snow pile up here, which is officially the highest snow fall on record for the month of March in my area, and the highest snow fall since the 60s for ANY time of the year.
Every so often, I look at the stats about who visits this blog and how they find it. "Dog Teeth" is one of the major search terms that lead people to my blog. So, I figured I should oblige my readers and post some more dog teeth. After all, Koira was willing to open wide for a photo op. This is my four-year-old dog's mouth. She has never had a dental of any kind. (Don't worry, "Cow Butts" is still one of the top draws to the blog. I plan on finding some local farms this spring to bring my readers more of what they want.)
And of course a Koira with her shadow picture. I actually did let Koira romp in the snow some today, because, well, it is the highest snow fall in a huge long time and my dogs love snow. Plus, she has been doing really good, building up muscle, and having no limping, so it is time to increase her activity anyway. She is doing fine tonight after her extra exercise today, so hopefully we can keep increasing her gradually until she is in race-shape again.
